Newborn screening tests look for developmental, metabolic, and genetic disorders in infants. It allows steps to be taken before development of symptoms. Although, majority of these illnesses are very rare, they can be treated with early diagnosis. Newborn screening includes over 30 conditions and illnesses. Increasing awareness among parents for disease screening is a major factor driving newborn screening market growth. Furthermore, various government and non-government organizations are actively focused on offering better fetal and maternal care. For instance, in June 2018, the American Society of Hematology (ASH) led a campaign to fight sickle cell disease in Africa and urged governments, particularly in sub-Saharan Africa, to invest in newborn screening of the disease.
Novel treatments, biomarkers, and technologies are expected to enable various diseases to be considered as potential candidates to be included in New Born Screening (NBS) programs. For instance, new treatments such as Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplant (HSCT), Enzyme Replacement Therapy (ERT), and gene therapy and new pharmacological drugs have allowed autoimmune diseases to be considered as potential candidates to be included in NBS programs.

Manufacturer in the newborn screening market are focused on developing new test kits and devices in order to diagnose more diseases or disorders at birth. For instance, in February 2018, Sema4, a health information company offering advanced genomic testing, launched Sema4 Natalis, a supplemental newborn screening test designed to detect 193 childhood-onset diseases or disorders.
Furthermore, several governments are supporting manufacturers to develop new screening tests by relaxing regulations for manufacturing and marketing products. For instance, in February 2017, the U.S. FDA approved marketing of the Seeker System for the screening of four, rare Lysosomal Storage Disorders (LSDs) in newborns. The Seeker system is designed to detect Fabry, Gaucher, Mucopolysaccharidosis Type I (MPS I), and Pompe. It is the first newborn screening test permitted to be marketed by the FDA for these disorders.
Key Takeaways of the Newborn Screening Market:
